Voltmeter??

Can anyone recommend a good voltmeter for our bikes, and how to mount it? Once I get this electrical problem fixed, I want to be able to monitor it for any future problems.

I recently installed the Kuryakyn LED unit on my bike, here are some pics.

It's easy to install, works well, is bright enough to see in bright sunshine, and you can tell at a glance what's going on. (Red, Yellow, Green lights)

Some people have a round analog unit which looks good and matches the stock gauges. And some other guys have used a digital numerical read-out unit which would be another "easy to tell at a glance" unit I think.

There's pics of all the variety through the forums and in the gallery.

I have the same one and mounted it with 3m body tape to the handle bar mount below the manufactures name. It is angled just enough that it in not distracting at night but can still be seek during the day

I almost put mine there too Rock, then thought about right next to the ignition switch but that looked too cheesy IMO, and finally settled above the box on the back of the headlight.

There's a recent link around here about installing one inside a mirror which looked trick as hell.
